Arrays and Hashes Mapping

by jesuashok (Curate)
on Dec 08, 2004 at 10:34 UTC ( #413146=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
jesuashok has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

@list = ( one , two , three ); %hash = ( one => 1 , two => 2 , three => 3 ); foreach (@list) { if ( $hash{$_} ) { $_ = '' ; } }
I want the above method to be simplified by using map or something else But it should be simple ( i,e ) one line. If the key is available in hash then the value should be removed from the list

    If I understand you correctly, perhaps something like this:

    @list = ('one' , 'two' , 'three'); %hash = ( one => 1 , two => 2 , three => 3 ); @list = grep { !$hash{$_} } @list;
      Better use exists here, so that ( zero => 0, empty => '' ) won't give you false positives:
      @list = grep { !exists $hash{$_} } @list;

[choroba]: My week was hectic as well, and so will be the next several ones...
[Corion]: Sane Dots Supplies - your brand manufacturer for satisfying experiences!
[choroba]: preparing the trip to Vietnam + buying a new car = enough fun
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, that's a lot of "fun" for one week...
[Corion]: I guess I should stage some product photos for Sane Dots Supplies ;)
[marto]: I had some ideas about that Corion
[marto]: I'll send a message over the weekend maybe :P
[Corion]: choroba: I avoided the "fun" of emergency shopping for a new flat iron by trying the flat iron without the timer that sat between it and the mains power. Seems as if just the timer is broken.
[Corion]: marto: Heh, would be cool!
